Use of ANFIS Control Approach for SSSC based Damping Controllers Applied in a Two-area Power System

In an interconnected power system, low frequency electromechanical oscillations are initiated by normal small changes in system loads, and they become much worse following a large disturbance. Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) devices are widely recognized as powerful controllers for damping power system oscillations. The standard FACTS controllers are linear controllers which may not guarantee acceptable performance or stability in the event of a major disturbance. To overcome the drawbacks of conventional controllers, ANFIS (Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System) control scheme has been developed in this paper, and it has been applied for the external coordinated control of series connected FACTS controllers known as Static Synchronous Series Compensators (SSSCs) employed in a two-area power system. In neuro-fuzzy control method, the simplicity of fuzzy systems and the ability of training in neural networks have been combined. The training data set the parameters of membership functions in fuzzy controller. This ANFIS can track the given input-output data in order to conform to the desired controller. Simulation studies carried out in MATLAB/SIMULINK environment demonstrate that the proposed ANFIS based SSSC controller shows the improved damping performance as compared to conventional SSSC based damping controllers under different operating conditions.
